Ridgewood NJ, Sheila Brogan Just got a one year extension to her original term using legal maneuvers
Ridgewood board of education member Sheila Brogan has been serving on the BOE for over 20 years and is probably the biggest reason for current state of high taxes in Ridgewood.
She was supposed to be on the ballot this year (Nov 2020), but she used taxpayer money to file a lawsuit in 2018 and got her term extended by 6 months to April 2021. Then she signed the One Vote petition and campaigned for the one vote with some of the school principals and other boe employees. The passing of one vote petition now extends her term on BOE by another 6-8 months and she will be up for re-election in Nov 2021.
In summary, by using tax payer money and legal maneuvers, she extended her term from 3 years to 4 years. This by the way is not the first time she extended her term. Her term was extended by 6-8 months in 2014 too when she voted to move the election from April to November.
